> Summer 2014 (July 7, 2014 – July 30, 2014)
> This intensive 3-credit program introduces students to India through the study of global health and social anthropology. Students stay at the world renowned Comprehensive Rural Health Program (CRHP) in Jamkhed, Maharashtra, India. Students visit rural villages to observe first-hand the everyday activities of village health workers. Students accompany the Comprehensive Rural Health Project mobile team of Ayurvedic physicians, nurses, social workers and development specialists on routine visits to villages. An inspiring part of the program is meeting women village health workers and learning from their own testimony about their life transitions from teenage brides to respected village health practitioners and political leaders. At Ellora and Ajunta, students visit the sacred monuments of Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism and learn about the history and culture of India. In Aurangabad, students view the historic Bibi-ka Magbara mosque built in 1661. In the city of Pune, students tour The Raja Dinkar Kelar Museum of Indian life, The Tribal Museum, and experience modern Bollywood-influenced shopping malls. >
